LGBT+ Student Support

How can schools support LGBT+ students?

We have worked closely with many schools across the Thames Valley and have found that LGBT+ students face a multitude of concerns and issues in school from bullying to domestic abuse and mental health to homelessness. We believe every student should be given the best opportunity to learn and grow, whilst maximising their experiences in school.

We have created 3 simple stages with quick fire questions that will enhance the experience of LGBT+ students in your school.

Take a look:

Challenge Discrimination

It's ok to challenge

Students rely on you to challenge others when they do something that threatens their identity. They need you to be strong when they cannot be. We can provide specific training to support this.

Build Awareness

Inspire and Educate

Most bullying related to sexuality and gender is a result of a lack of understanding or awareness. Use the specialist LGBT+ resources available on our website in your curriculum plans.

Be an Enabler

Own the Agenda

It is important not to presume that someone else is dealing with it. Step up and own the change. By simply representing LGBT+ students through acknowledgement, you can be the difference between a blocker and an enabler.

Not sure about how to deliver these in your school? Our dedicated School Liaison Team are on hand every weekday to step in and assist. We will not only directly support your student through their concerns, but we will also provide you with key training and policy and development support to achieve the 3 points above. 

Every student has the right to be their best. Let’s make that happen.

Still not sure? Check out some quick FAQs below:

Should a student reach out to you and ask for assistance in an LGBT+ issue and to provide effective support you feel that you need a better understanding of LGBT+ issues please do get in contact! We are happy to help you better understand LGBT+ concerns for your students and assist in dealing with any issue appropriately. Please get in touch and we can take a look!

By law, it is becoming necessary for schools to have policies that cover their LGBT+ students and the issues they may face e.g. abuse, discrimination, harassment, homophobia, bullying and transphobia.

Should you recognise such a need in your school, we provide a service to write the LGBT+ inclusive policy for you.

Your place of education should be in the Thames Valley area. Support for individuals is free but some of the advice we give to education providers may incur a fee.
